Liverpool front man:salah told David luiz he felt no contact for penalty

Liverpool m.salah told d.luiz he didn't feel  any contact.
Mohamed Salah told David Luiz ‘I didn’t feel you touch me’ after he was awarded a penalty in Liverpool’s win against Arsenal.
The defender had a torrid afternoon at Anfield, conceding the penalty, picking up a yellow card and allowing Salah to ghost past him and curl home his second of the game in the 3-1 win.
This is the closest David Luiz got to Salah in 90-minutes, the Egyptian on fine form against Arsenal
In the first-half, the Gunners posed a significant threat to Jurgen Klopp’s side, with new summer signing Nicolas Pepe particularly dangerous on the break.
And manager Unai Emery would certainly have believed his side could claw their way back into the match in the second-half before Luiz hauled down Salah in the box.
And rather then hold his hands up and take responsibility for his dismal performance, Luiz has instead blamed VAR, insisting the technology makes incidents look worse than they are.
Luiz said: “I spoke with Mo [Salah] and he said ‘I didn’t feel you touch me, that’s why I didn’t go down to the floor’.
“But now with the VAR, you cannot see the power so it is difficult for the referees.
“He saw the shirt like that, but I don’t know.
“It’s difficult for them so I cannot complain with their efforts because it is difficult for them too.
“If you play with an extra-large shirt now, there could be a penalty every time.
“It’s interpretation, so I think if you pull someone with power and you change his strength to go to the ball, it’s different.
“It was just a reflex but that’s it, it made the penalty and after that he gave me the yellow.”
